A brave, early, caring whistleblower has passed away

Rita was a courageous and compassionate woman who, for years, was one of the very few who tried hard to warn parents and parishioners about Washington's most prolific and devastating predator priest. We extend our deepest sympathy to her loved ones and our gratitude to those who joined her quest to safeguard kids and expose wrongdoing.
